Reimagining the Museum will bring together museum professionals who want to champion change in their museums. Explore the mindset needed to implement and manage change successfully.
About the conference
Reimagining the Museum offers a variety of formats and learning experiences to reflect critically on a shared understanding of museum practice and the role of museums as active community partners in addressing a range of social, cultural and environmental challenges. Over three intensive days, the convening will highlight innovative ideas and creative approaches from colleagues across the Americas, as well as share successful solutions to reimagining the museum’s role in community.
Some of the themes to be discussed include:
- Museums as platforms for diverse participation and representation in influencing public policy and advancing positive social change.
- Museums as catalysts for economic renewal in partnership with civic, government, and corporate allies through innovative business models.
- Museums as chroniclers of the human experience that embrace complex narratives and multiple voices.
- Museums as educational innovators providing essential learning that inspires curiosity, creativity, and empowerment.
This event is made possible through a partnership between Fundación TyPA (Teoría y Práctica de las Artes) in Argentina, American Alliance of Museums (AAM) in the United States of America in collaboration with Parque Explora in Colombia.
Reimagining the Museum will take place in Medellín, Colombia November 1-3, 2017. Simultaneous interpretation will be provided for sessions in Spanish and English.
